Why is this different?

The retinol & peptide serum is an anti-aging distinctive duo of Retinol and Peptides, that works effectively on skin collagen production and fights various signs of aging. 0.2% Retinol slows down the skin’s aging process and fights fine lines and wrinkles, whereas 1% proteasyl peptides from Pea (Pisum Sativum) Extract, act as a framework for skin proteins by facilitating collagen production and plump & firm skin. Added Hyaluronic Acid and Palmaria Palmata Extract work on the necessary moisturization and uneven pigmentation.

How Does it Work on the Skin?

  • 0.2% Retinol increases cell turnover rate, thus producing fresh skin faster, to keep various signs of aging at bay.
  • 1% Proteasyl Peptides facilitate collagen production, skin moisturization and thus firms and plumps skin.
  • Added Hyaluronic Acid tackles dryness, whereas Palmaria Palmata Extract works on uneven pigmentation.

How to use?

  1. Apply 2-3 drops to dry skin after cleansing.
  2. Gently massage until the entire product is absorbed into the skin.
  3. Use of moisturizer is mandatory after using this product.
  4. It is recommended to use in night skincare routine only
  5. Start using 2-3 times a week and SLOWLY increase the frequency of usage to every day.

Constant Repurchase

I've been loving this product so much. It's a constant repurchase

Best formulation ever

Retinols are normally drying for the skin but this formulation is so so amazing. Leave aside any trace of dryness, it gives a glow to the skin and improves the overall texture. Very comfortable to be used by beginners. I hope they come up with a higher concentration of retinol as my skin has become super comfortable with this potency of retinol.

Good serum

The serum is light weight and has a sturdy packaging, it is begginer friendly,while it's better to use Sandwich method Atleast for few weeks to avoid purging, overall a affordable, long lasting and good serum which needs to be used for a long run to see maximum benefits ,while it still shows a visible difference in a month or 2 with regular use.
